Paul conducted a half-day session on building resilience with our team and we all left feeling energised and motivated to make positive changes to the way we live our lives. Two weeks on the team continues to have cold showers (and remain accountable via our accountability board). I’ve noticed a real shift in the attitude towards health and wellness of our team following Paul’s session. The advice he gives is practical and achievable and intertwined with interesting anecdotes. Thanks for a memorable and useful session Paul.

Hands down the most valuable professional development session I have participated in to date. Paul connects theory to application in a credible, motivating and compelling way. It would be almost impossible to leave a Paul Taylor session without taking a personal step forward.

I would highly recommend ‘The Neuroscience of Performance’ program to all overworked, overstressed executives who want to achieve an uplift in their professional performance and more to the point their quality of life. Paul Taylor has an intuitive ability to understand the drivers of high performance and presents it with enough science to ensure a change in behaviour in any stubborn but intelligent exec.
